Pearl Harbor Day: Remembering the date which will live in infamy

Let's remember Pearl Harbor And go on to victory. -- Lyrics of a song recorded by big-band leader Sammy Kaye Editor's note: Val Lauder, a former reporter for the Chicago Daily News and lecturer at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, is the author of "The Back Page: The Personal Face of History."
